o Images taken from cameras not meeting the preservation spec: It is inevitable that events
will occur where images we wish to preserve in RUcore will be captured by cameras not meeting
the above specifications. In the absence of better quality images, such images can be accepted
by RUcore on a case-by-case basis, in which the RUL Digital Data Curator or the Digital
Preservation Task Force will need to evaluate the images and determine the best course of action.
It should be stressed however, that the viability of such images cannot be guaranteed and any
preservation efforts will be done on a “best effort” basis.
